Hackers show off long-distance Wi-Fi radio proxy at DEF CON

Lucian Constantin | Aug. 10, 2015
A talk about a radio-based privacy device dubbed ProxyHam that promised to allow hackers to connect to Wi-Fi networks from as far as 2.5 miles away was abruptly pulled from the DEF CON schedule by its creator a few weeks ago.

Caudill's company, Rhino Security Labs, which announced the talk's cancellation in July, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

However, Caudill told Wired in an interview last month that the FCC had nothing to do with it. At the time, Rhino Security also said that it was immediately halting development of ProxyHam, that it wouldn't release any more details about the device and that existing units would be "disposed of."
